Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love this pattern, but at the very beginning it says to divide the cast on stitches evenly over 4 needles, so you would need a set of 5 double pointed needles to get started knitting. Quite often, needles in this size come in sets of 4, so maybe that should be pointed out in the materials list? It could easily be done with a set of 4, but it isn't written that way. Or am I missing something?

Hi there! Thank you so much for your comment. I made a note in the materials list that five needles are needed! Have a great day!

These would make a perfect stocking stuffer! I love wearing socks like these on lazy winter Sundays.
